Sorry you missed Kiss (but not letting yourself get fucked is a good reason). It’s pissing down in Richmond and I’ve got the fucking flu… I’m going to stop whining now. Hope everyone else is in (sob) good health. -E

City/State/Country: jersey Comment: zach- here are those sophia links that you wanted: http://geocities.com/wouterberteloot/sophia.html http://www.geocities.com/cdmunter/gm/sophia.html the second one is the better site. more info, mail order and such. the first one is pretty new and that’s where i saw the news about adam coming back to NY. oh, and mogwai doesn’t have anything scheduled for new orleans… last night was the last us date on the tour, but i would imagine that they would come back once the new album is out… later…
Date: Thu Mar 29 10:46:24 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: NYC Comment: No, i didn’t make it to Mogwai. Not entirely due to the fact that i suck, but instead to the extremely slim chances I had of getting in. So there. I am very curious to hear the new one. I’ve heard mixed things about it…

Thier claim to fame was that one of the guys was Ian McCullough’s cousin.I also found a really old looking Throwing Muse record looked like before 4ad but some young punk stole the record out of the sleeve.Did anyone see the great article on the Pixies in last months Mojo magazine from the UK? It’s excellent the whole story from beginning to end. Thier B-sides cd came out this month but still haven’t seen it in any stores in my shitty city. Alright Swervies. Bye.

Date: Mon Mar 26 22:39:50 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: I was in Champagne, Illinois (Hum’s home town) this past May. The locals there said that Hum had most likely ended things. The Poster Children are from Champagne as well. I used to really like them when I was in high school ten years ago, but I saw them with Swerve in NYC in ’97 and thought they were kind of lackluster. Maybe it was because of who they were sharing the bill with. I mean who wouldn’t look like Mickey Mouse after sharing the stage with Swervedriver…the same goes for Hum I’m afraid. The weirdest band that I ever saw Swerve play with was Samiam. What the fuck?
Date: Mon Mar 26 21:30:29 2001 Name: Ghostie O City/State/Country: Crampton, Virginny Comment: I think HUM called it quits.

City/State/Country: jersey… Comment: news from the SOPHIA site: ADAM IS MOVING BACK TO NEW YORK. what does this mean for the swervies? one can only speculate… as for me, my favorite swervedriver song of the moment is either ‘homeless homecoming’ or ‘stellar capris’… favorite toshack song: ‘theme.’ what can i say… going to see MOGWAI this wednesday has me loving the instrumentals…
Date: Mon Mar 26 01:59:31 2001 Name: michael City/State/Country: b.c. canada Comment: Yeah, Christianity is alive and well. So ? Ioesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a bit of SWD. You enjoy your’s and I’ll enjoy mine. But as this is a Swervie site, on to other things. I learned how to play Blowin’ cool the other day. Easy chords but fun to play real loud! Listening to a bizarre slow version of 93 Million Miles, right now. Fantastic! Napster seems to be still alive and kickin’. Haven’t heard much by Starflyer 59 in a while, had an album of theirs a long time ago. They still around? Would kill (or proselytise?) for a live version of Girl on a Motorbike. Later all, mig ps and those of you still in SWD, more please. Thanks much.

Date: Thu Mar 22 19:08:56 2001 Name: MagicAlec City/State/Country: Montreal Comment: hey Ian yeah, i’ve also gotta admit that Swervie’s “It’s All Happening Now” is the most astoundingly original cover (dig the paradox) i’ve ever heard. I believe it was in this guestbook that someone mentioned that the song was intended for ESR but was taken off at the last minute when Dylan’s people caught wind of it. It’s just as well i suppose, ’cause it doesn’t seem to fit either the mood or lyrical theme of that album. You shouldn’t have any problem finding it on napster though.
Date: Thu Mar 22 17:53:30 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: I’m not ashamed to admit that I fell in love with Ace Frehley at the age of 4 (before I discovered sexuality) and credit him soley for me wanting to play guitar. My fave guitarists are: Ace, James Williamson, Ron Asheton, Leigh Stephens, Adam&Jimmy (of course), Nick McCabe, Kevin Shields, Wayne Kramer, Sonic Smith, and Nick Drake. Sorry for guitar geeking it there… Marianne was quite lovely when she was younger. Nowadays, she’s the kind of woman that I’d to step between her and her cigarettes. I’m off to Raleigh to see the lady friend. Have good weekends all. -E

Date: Thu Mar 22 15:34:35 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: Last evening, I went to Brussels(Bruxelles) for a Dandy Warhols concert. The first part was Cousteau. Heard about? Good music really but the singer should be sacked, awful voice, nothing to see with the music (Shaking his fingers like a variety TV singer, really stupid) but a great guitarist. The Dandy Warhols then played 2 hours along. Behind them a screen showing psychedelic cycles like Winamp plug-ins. I think it was a fabulous show with these psychedelic riffs that keeps you in your own trance. Far the best concert I go to (Sorry, I’ve never been to a swervie show). I even manage to get an autograph by the keyboard(ist???)girl on my ticket. They were more sober in their attitude that I thought they were (really sympathic, not arrogant). Definitely my second favourite band behind Swervedriver. And my Swervedriver favourite song is ‘single finger salute’ (just a little bit too short) which brings me the image of a man on his sledge pulled out by huskies (the dog) crossing a flat snowy north pole land.

Zach, good to see you’re still around. We’ll be in NOLA for 1st weekend of Jazz Fest. Can’t wait. Patty, thanks for the props. You better not love swervedriver more!!

Funnily enuff it didnt make it onto the soon-to-be-released ride boxset. (Although it may be part of the live set, dunno). btw my current fave swd song is Afterglow, while g/fs fave is Scrawl & Scream, nice switch eh? 🙂

He said it was never released which is a shame because its the most origional cover that I’ve ever heard (if you get my drift). He reconed you might be able to down load it on mp3 but he couldnt say what site. Any ideas?
Date: Thu Mar 22 05:17:53 2001 Name: dave City/State/Country: bradford Comment: erik, i’m sure you’re right…i pretended to be marianne faithful to alleviate a spell of existential boredom. she was in the film of the same name though, and when i saw it a couple of years ago, i just had the swervie song in my head the whole time…well almost, it does get a bit steamy as i recall! fave swervie song is definetly very hard to pin down, seeing as how they haven’t done anything even remotely crap!! i think i would have to go for ‘laze it up’ though…along with ‘standing here’ by the stone roses, ‘ocean size’ by jane’s addiction and gimme shelter, it’s definetly one of the best sounding records ever!…in my humble opinion, of course!
Date: Thu Mar 22 04:20:16 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Kik. Superchunk T-shirts get a chubba chub AND a 10p bag of Metal Micky fizz bombs so its well worth turning up!
Date: Wed Mar 21 22:25:00 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Richmond, Old Dominion VA Comment: Sundog, yeah, I’ve come to know the highways of Indiana very well. Everytime we drive through there I’m like “this is the state that produced James Dean and Kurt Vonnegut!!” I get into geeky things like that. I forgot to mention FSA’s first album in my last post. Their cover of that Suede song is hilarious. Yes Paul, I dig “Just For a Day” as well, particularly “Erik’s song”…hehe…they even spell it the same way. Is Marianne Faithful the “Girl on a Motorbike”? I always thought that song was written about a band friend who was raped by skinheads. Definitely changed the vibe of the song for me after I found that out. It’s a beautiful tune regardless. I think today my favorite Swerve tune is “Bleeding Heart”. Kik, you humble me so calling me a rock star. Does mean that I’ve got a groupie in the Oz land? 🙂 I hope all the rest of you are Sci-flyin’ high… -E
Date: Wed Mar 21 22:21:03 2001 Name: Zach City/State/Country: New Orleans-LA-USA Comment: When the hell is Swerve going to put out a new album? Do y’all think we’ll ever see another? As for the best Swerve song, for me it’s either Duress. No, it’s Never Lose that Feeling. I like Laze it Up too. And Andalucia. And The Other Jesus. Damn, how can you narrow it down to one song? Impossible. Do any of you swervies like Cool Your Boots by Ride? That is an incredible song as well as those mentioned above. Take it easy, Z
Date: Wed Mar 21 17:31:27 2001 Name: Kevin City/State/Country: Atlanta GA USA Comment: Best Swerve song ever? Today, I’m leaning toward “Juggernaut Rides” because nobody’s saving roses – only thorns for you.

I saw Swervedriver a couple of times at the Metro. The last time I was at the Empty Bottle was for the band ‘Trans Am’. FSA, I really love their first disk the most. Slowdive is excellent! I saw them on their last tour at the Metro and they were definitely one of those bands that sounded even better in concert.

All this T-shirt talk has got me thinking about other cool SWD stuff. One thing I totally regret not getting back at the 94′ show was the big MezcalHead poster. It was a beauty. Deep Seat was the first swervie tune put to my ear. I was drunk in the backseat of a car. My friends had just picked up raise and took the oppertunity to give me a listen, and Man, oh man! Sweet sounds be praised! One thing that is distinctly SWD is their ability to marry title/lyrics to the music. Satansville sounds like a train, Girl on a Motorbike sounds like a bike changing gears. My Time sounds like time passing. Very cool. My favourite though is Superman. Adam’s voice through a telephone (phone booth?), cymbals crash like falling debris, and the big base line gives the feeling of the earth rumbling. Its things like that that put the art into rock. SWD–More than just music!

Date: Tue Mar 20 07:47:22 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Live copy of Deap Seat eh? Its the one song Ive always wanted to see live. I saw them at King Tuts on the Mescal Head and 99th dream tours but they didny play it at either. I swear I will if hear it one day if its the last thing I do goddamit! Shameless gig plug coming up. My band TERRA DIABLO are playing the MONARCH in Camden/London on the 12th of APRIL as part of the Bar Fly sessions. I beg anyone who visits this site to come down. There are some heavy Swervedriver influences in our stuff mixed in with some mellower Sofia/Slint type thing and I pledge a free Chuppa Chubb to anyone who turns up in a Swervie T-shirt and if Art, Jezz, Adam or anyone else reads this please come along as I can say then that I have truly fullfilled by destiny in this cheesy football we call planet Earth!

Date: Mon Mar 19 15:57:13 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: I’ve “been away for soooo loooong”. I just got back from my band’s little mini-tour. SunDog, I was in the Chi-town a few nights ago. We played the Empty Bottle and Morseland, it was a great time, but unfortunately, my southern fried ass is fighting off a cold now. Art, that sounds amazing. Not only is Kim’s the best record store that I’ve seen in all of my travels, but seeing Swervedriver there playing what might be my favorite song by them would rule. Paulo, I think my favorite FSA album is “Distance”. I think that it’s available on Drag City records, but I’m not too sure about that. They have so many releases that it’s difficult to keep up with them. Yeah, you’ve got to be careful with some of their EPs. They’re one of those bands that likes to release a lot of “filler” material in the form of an EP (which is generally useless, live guitar feedback). “Chorus” and “Further” are also good albums. Paul, yes Slowdive is excellent. I think Soulvaki was their stellar release (though the earlier MBV-sounding stuff was great too) Kik, good to hear from you again. Sorry those fucking yanks stole your best shirts. Hope everyone else is well. -E

Date: Mon Mar 19 00:00:13 2001 Name: neoJedi City/State/Country: syd/oz Comment: forgot to mention, i only recently got a listen of the whole toshack cd, & have to say there are some gorgeous songs on there. also heard a live acoustic take from that iNet show adam did, (a song called ‘Over’). apparently was to be a swd song from mezcal days but never made the cut. darn good song though. hmm fresh swd treats 🙂 anyone got that show on mp3 format??? i was thinkin of recordin it myself through realplayer then converting -> wav –> mp3, but the stream keeps breakin up. If no-one has already, i’ll put in the effort & post the tunes, but someone with better connection would get better results.

I have a rare live cut of the guys doing it in Kim’s on St. Mark’s Place in NYC. So sleepy and dreamy…

Once I bought one of their EPs called “Stepping Stones” and was very disappointed but I’d like to give the band another listen. They’ve got a lot of stuff and I don’t know what to begin with…. PS: D’you wanna know how do Swervies sound live? Go to Napster and downloadn Triple J’s (“rare”)live version of Blowin’ Cool. It’s PURE swervedriver. Both guitars are in PERFECT synch and Jez is practically EATING UP the whole drum kit. The closest you can get to the real thing…

The plastercine swervies kicked ass. They kind of reminded me of the video for ‘i stay away’ by alice in chains – know what i mean? who did the plastercine swervies? can i have them? no – i didn’t think so.

This tour included the famous Sydney Metro gig so oft quoted by the band as a fave. its a lrg jpg file cause i didnt know how to scan when i made this one… but hey. if anyone wants to adds this image to a site, lemme know & i’ll go rescan it in a more web friendly fashion. http://www.clubcast.com.au/swd.html

Unfortunatly my Jag is just a reissue aswell but I love it just the same. I thought Adam used one when i bought it only to find it was another stoned misconseption. Never mind. Next thing to get is a wammi wah. I think swervedriver use one. Im sure thats what is used on Never Loose That Feeling. If your ever down Sleazies or the 13th note give us a shout for some cheep tickets. Ill be the one wearing either the Duel or Jesus Loves the Swervies T-shirt as theyre never off my back. I must wash them someday!

Date: Mon Mar 12 13:35:55 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Raleigh, North Carolina (at the moment) Comment: Deep Seat defintely brought guitar sounds to a new, beautiful plateau. It’s defintely one of my favorite songs ever. I saw this really good band last night called Onieda. Have you all heard them before? They’re from Brooklyn, NYC and they’re fucking great. They were this whirlwind of fuzzed out guitars, farfisas, and one of the most intense drummers that I’ve ever seen. Hopefully they’ll make their way to everyone else’s parts of the world. Hope all of you are well. -E

No prizes for guessing the inspiration behind that purchase.Oh aye, what everyone’s said about Deep seat is spot on.

Date: Mon Mar 12 05:55:40 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Paulo, I agree totaly!!. Deap Seat is unsoubtedly the best song ever written in my opinion. Its one of those songs that makes the hairs on your arm stand on end every time you hear it and that guitar solo….well, enough said.
Date: Sun Mar 11 17:51:19 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: SWERVEDRIVER: BITS n PIECES. We always hear about one’s favourite records and songs, but there’s hardly any discussion about the “song bit” dimension when it comes to rock and roll. You know, those two or three breathtaking seconds that totally blow yer mind…Here are, in my opinion, two of Swervedriver’s fabulous moments: SCI-FLYER [from 03:45 to 03:51]: Where did Adam/Jimmy get that whining tune from!? Seems like amidst total chaos, there comes a loud and agonizing scream from someone reaching out for help, only to be engulfed again by a thunderbolt of frenzied guitars. DEEP SEAT [from 03:27 to 04:12]This one’s beautiful. It’s like doldrums inbetween storms. I’ve got a friend who says that when listening to that bit, and if you’re deeply into it, you can actually travel “in your very own parallel time” through another dimension and hark all the way back to the early 90’s. Gotta try that. Anyway, you’ve CERTAINLY noticed I’m not too competent a music critic, but I’m sure that’s much more realistic than any NME review :). Just trying out a whole new subject… PS: Alistair, you still didn’t tell us precisely WHAT did you expect this site to be about, but all your suggestions will be welcome. PS2: Tuomas, great move! There’s not a single reason why you should be looked down upon by any well-meaning person for wearing a Swervie t-shirt.PS3: GarlicSoul, if you find out about that Swervie footage, please let me know, I don’t have anything to trade but I’ve been putting $ome aside just for that.
Date: Sat Mar 10 16:25:20 2001 Name: James City/State/Country: Seattle, WA Comment: just saw the ‘Doves’ at the Crocodile here in Seattle last night. Killer show! When I closed my eyes it felt like I was at a Swervedriver gig .. It was a total SWD homage, the guitar tones were so tasty, bouncing all over the place. Interesting multi-media feel w/ the random short movie clips ala Bhole Surfers.. Swervedriver played this same club back in June 98′ and wreaked similar havoc on the place. It’s small and the sound just roars. Two of the best shows I’ve seen in a few years. Time for SWD to get back out on the road I think..

As of late, I’ve rediscovered Flying Saucer Attack. I listened to them like crazy when I first heard them 5 years ago and eventually put them down. Nowadays they’ve been sounding beautiful again. Also this band called the Bellrays, they’re kind of MC5-esque with a Tina Turner/Aretha Franklin sounding singer, pretty rockin…

I think that I would become murderous if my guitars were stolen. Oh and Alistair, we all get into “discussions” about Swervedriver T-shirts, and other things, because we love this band’s music and all things pertaining to them. I think those stiletto heels have you turned you into a little bitch there, Essex boy…
Date: Thu Mar 8 05:07:23 2001 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: Erik, never mind… I kicked their arses and haven’t heard any shit from them after that :)… and “uppers” is the word finlandia nowadays really, spring starts to show it’s face (only -10 anymore) and the sun is actually shining… Only band news are that our reheasal room was broke into last weekend, death to that bastard… (atleast we have had most of our stuff back with the aid of the Finnish police force…)
Date: Thu Mar 8 04:23:30 2001 Name: Alistair City/State/Country: Romford, Essex Comment: This is my first visit to the Swervedriver website. I didn’t think it was going to be a discussion forum for t.shirts.
Date: Thu Mar 8 00:01:35 2001 Name: GarlicSoul City/State/Country: Comment: I noticed someone wondering about J Mascis, many posts ago. I think Mascis’ new solo album is great! I was relieved because I didnt really dig the last Dino one, too much. Kevin Shields participated in the recording sessions for a few weeks (though it doesnt clarify what he may have done and on which songs he would have done it on), but Mascis plays pretty much everything by himself. A possible official Swervedriver live album? That sounds great. Speaking of live Swerve, I would love to get my hands on some live Swervedriver footage, if anyone is interested in a possible trade. I remember seeing some boot video with mostly clips of 92/93 era Swervedriver songs, but I was too slow…errr…broke to get it. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want to inquire about a trade. Mind you that I have absolutely NO live Swervedriver stuff to trade, so hopefully I will have other bands that may suffice.
Date: Wed Mar 7 22:46:17 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Sorry Tuomas, I neglected to wish well those of you in the Finlandia area with my last post. How’s the RockNRoll/Graphic design going? A shite reputation for a self made SWD shirt? Fuck that…

Date: Wed Mar 7 12:46:06 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: The pedals shirt was beautiful, I remember when I ordered it way back in 93 it was sold out. The fx thing seems to me quite symbolic of Swervedriver (more than other dreampop bands). I remember once this NME review about a Swervie gig (in Amsterdam I guess) where the reporter said he’d never seen so many boxes onstage (he actually COUNTED 14 of them). Jez, what d’you think about reissuing that one? Tuomas, odd reputation!? You can always change clothes, but personally I would have changed friends instead. “Every day, Rock n’ Roll is saving my Life” — Adam Franklin

Date: Wed Mar 7 07:04:00 2001 Name: dave City/State/Country: oo-kay Comment: i had a swervie shirt…just said ‘swervedriver’…don’t even think the writing was stylised but i lost it years back – moving houses and all that. then one day i was at my dad’s house and he wanders in wearing it – he’d been wearing it to work in so it was well dirty from being worn whilst under people’s floorboards (he works for the CIA…erm..honest!..well actually he’s a plumber). even though i missed the t-shirt, it was more satisfying to know that a 50 year old man was working in people’s houses wearing a shirt advertising a supercool rock’n’roll band!!…rock on, dad! my mate had the one with all the pedals but that’s vanished too. dan – what happened to your ‘never lose that feeling’ type shirt that you nicked from ric??
Date: Wed Mar 7 00:20:43 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: I put a Swervedriver page on my new website (in french of course). I just found back an article in a french magazine (in 1998) talking about the 99th dream release, if somebody is interested, I can try to translate it in english but it won’t be easy because to describe the album they had to use a more elaborate vocabulary than they usually do(I just thought that Swervedriver is above their intellectual level)… But (at your demand) it should help me to speak english better than I actually do so I’m ready to do it. Maybe in your review section Art ?
Date: Tue Mar 6 23:01:20 2001 Name: Erik the Red City/State/Country: Valhalla Comment: The Jesus shirt was beautiful. It’s a shame that mine is so fucked up now. Perhaps I could seel it on ebay, but then again I can’t see many people being interested in wearing a holey rag that has my drunken, teenage perma-stench branded deep inside of it. I guess I just loved it too much. Speaking of shirts, are the ones that were available on the website no longer existent? I ordered one as a gift for a friend, but I never got one of my own. Don’t let the job eat your brain Paul. I think the Zombies are my new favorite band (besides Swervedriver and the Stooges of course) Hope all is well to all the rest of you in Virginia, New York, England, Scotland, Canada, Austrailia, Mars, wherever…-E

You know the one? And if an Jez, Adam or other such god like Swervedriver type people should read this then my life would be complete if you could somehow make it!! For more info contact email@example.com or phone King Tuts on 0141 248 5158 We’re playing London soon. I think the venue is called the Martell. Any info on this would be much appreceated too.
Date: Tue Mar 6 01:41:45 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Yeah Paulo it’s a good one. I love how they tend to embrace Espanol at times. I regret not ever buying the old shirt that had the effects pedals. That one is long gone I’m afraid.
Date: Mon Mar 5 20:53:05 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: Hey, Erik, I’ve still got that shirt myslef, and mine’s pretty worn out too (although there’s something particularly strange about the silk screen that won’t fade out). I have four swervie shirts but that one is by far my favourite. And it fits me well, the others are all XLarge. Gee, I could cut two overcoats out of that Raise shirt…

Oh and Kik, i’m sorry to hear that you spilt red wine down your swervie t-shirt, but here’s an idea…why don’t you dye it red!? (or at least pour wine down the rest of it) thus eliminating the need for swervedriver to tour again!?!?! My god i’m acting like a madman – ignore everything i’ve said.
